  • Description

    As Hurricane "Donna" veered northwards towards Florida, Sept 9, extensive emergency precautions were taken. Larders were stocked from the giant self-service supermarkets, planes and boats were shuttled into hangars and harbours, windows boarded, and some initial evacuation took place.

    Having already accounted for at least 116 deaths in the Caribbean, "Donna" with her 50 mph winds threatens Cuba as well as southeast USA.

    Islands scattered around Florida's coastline will be worst hit, while the populous Miami area is expected to escape with 50 to 60 mph winds.

    But the mainland is taking precautions - mapping out possible disaster areas, assigning medical teams, and checking radio communications by amateus.
